Hi,

to be honest I dislike the new names too. You turned it into a refcount,
which is good, but the normal linux name for such refcount functions is
_get and _put..... and in addition the refcount technically isn't
hotplug specific, all you want is to keep the kernel data for the
processor as being "used", so cpu_get() and cpu_put() would sound
reasonable names to me, or cpu_data_get() cpu_data_put().

Greetings,
Arjan van de Ven
